Rodgers: The Club Is In Control

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that the club is in complete control of Luis Suarez's future and that he is calm about the situation

Suarez publicly voiced his desire to leave Anfield this summer while on international duty with Uruguay, saying that he was unhappy with the treatment given to him by the media in England.

Rodgers, though, says that he is in contact with the player and remains hopeful that the player will stay on.

“It’s quite simple. The club is in complete control of the situation," Rodgers told talkSPORT.

“For me there is no real change in it. He’s away with the Uruguay squad at the moment and we’re messaging and what not.

“I will always listen to players. I always work closely with players and listen to their point of view but the biggest word is with the club.

“Sometimes interviews get put out there and highlighted, but parts of Luis’ interviews have been about how much he loves Liverpool, but of course that doesn’t get highlighted.

“It’s something that happens. I’m quite relaxed about it.”

He continued, “What I know is that the support Luis has had from the people here in Liverpool, the city and the football club, has been phenomenal and I know he feels that and respects that.

“We’re in a situation where we’ve got a player who we don’t want to lose.

"We’re trying to build something here and he’s a very important part of that and because of the type of player he is he will always give his best."
